Come this June school holidays, ACT 3 International has set up a series of educating and fun-filled workshops. One such workshops is “Jelly, Wobble!” which is based on a well-loved children’s story. Taking inspiration from ‘The Jelly That Wouldn’t Wobble’ by Angela Mitchell, a light-hearted tale of Princess Lolly, who is holding an 89th birthday banquet and is presented with a stubborn jelly that refuses to wobble!
This is a 2 hours drop-off workshop that is held twice daily from now till 9 June 2015 is curated for 4 to 8 year olds. The workshop comprises of four key elements – interactive art, exhibitions, show, drama workshop and visual arts activities.
